Chronic Ear Ache / Congestion

Including Eustachian Tube Dysfunction & Eustachian Tube Ballooning

Chronic or recurrent ear ache can affect a large number of people, and traditional treatments are often ineffective.


The scientific evidence for modern techniques such as balloon dilation of the Eustachian Tubes (ear drainage tubes to the back of the nose) is building. The technology has proved safe and effective for symptomatic relief in a carefully selected group of patients with these problems.

Surgery is usually performed as a day-case procedure under a short general anaesthetic which means you can go home on the same day and recover in the comfort of your own home.
